Just FYI, the rule against illegal cartoons exists in the USA too. The Supreme Court struck down attempts to use CP laws in this way as being obvious nonsense, so Congress just went ahead and amended the law to make it explicitly illegal as opposed to implicitly illegal.

You apparently missed some important details. I have highlighted them for you.

Some of that info seems bogus. 10,000 CNC mills? Unlikely. 10,000 CNC machines of all types across all of Apple manufacturing, maybe.

I was skeptical too, but then I looked up the numbers and turns out 10,000 is actually an underestimation:

The Fanuc Robodrill is the world's common CNC machine measured by installation numbers and by total value thanks to Apple.

The submitter added that on their own. The bill applies to all US persons, i.e., all citizens, permanent residents, and corporate entities.

From the actual text of the bill:

The term ‘United States person’ means a citizen or permanent resident alien of the United States, or an entity or organization organized under the laws of the United States or a State or political subdivision thereof.’

The word "citizen" doesn't even occur in the article.

I did, and all I received was an automatic reply saying that slashdot.org will not respond to or even read my messages, due to the large number of emails received at that address.

That is an utterly unacceptable response. I am outraged; I shall be referring this matter to the German police.

You buy 10 shares GOOG at $500. Later you buy 20 share of GOOGs at $550. Later you buy 20 share of GOOG at $560.

If you pay 30 shares to somebody

So, you wait a month, now GOOG is at $570, and you sell 5 shares.

Your cost base is ( $500 * 10 + $550 * 20 + $560 * 20) / 50 = 544

When you paid someone that 30 shares, the price at that instant was $560, so you made a capital gain of (560-544)*30 = $480

When you sold 5 shares at $570, you made a capital gain of (570-544)*30 = $130

I really don't see what's so confusing about this.

I replied the insult wasn't a word in Mandarin,

No, you didn't, you liar. You said "And it's not a chinese word".

but you assholes insulted me because I didn't know the cantonese word.

No, I insulted you because you wasted everyone's time with your ignorant bullshit about how a Cantonese word isn't Chinese. If you had said "And it's not a Mandarin word" then I would have modded you informative and moved on.

You can't take damsel here now.
